(Big yawn and stretch)

I am coming off the heels of a big week (drs, dentists, and dermatologists – oh my!) and a bigger weekend. My parents, my four siblings, my nieces, our eight, and my great aunt (on my mom’s side, all the way from Winona, Minnesota) were all together this weekend to celebrate my brother’s college graduation. It was a very fun, little reunion of sorts. Good, but tiring.

This week is busy – and fun-filled as well (dinner guests, dentist, and a birthday celebration), so it’s imperative that I have things organized. Here are our meals for the week:

oatmeal and applesauce
chicken sandwiches
queso fundido

eggs, hashbrowns and toast
snacky lunch
company dinner of pasta bar, salad, breads

cranberry muffins and yogurt
chili dogs, veggies and dip
meatloaf, mac and cheese, salad

Thursday – My baby boy turns five so he picked the menu
hamburgers and fries
Costco pizza, veggies and dip, a “Butterfree” cake (stay tuned)

leftovers – I hope
lasagna, salad, and bread

grilled chicken, rice pilaf, and salad

I know that at least having a plan is one step closer to having a week that works. Check out more menu plans at I’m an Organizing Junkie.

    Can’t explain exactly why, but your post title put “He’s got the whole world in his hands, He’s got the…” into my head.

    That aside, sounds like a delicious menu.

    Can’t wait to hear more about a butter free cake – is it an allergy thing or a cholestoral thing?

    What on earth is queso fundido? Sounds like something I should be eating, even though I have never heard of it!


Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
